In 2019, we mark the 50th anniversary of one of the most significant moments of human endeavour, and celebrate the Australian technology and ingenuity that allowed the wold to share for the first time that a human walked on the Moon. The Apollo 11 lunar landing is commemorated in this 2019 $5 Silver Domed Proof Coin featuring colour print and nickel plating.

For fifty years the televised moon walk of the Apollo 11 lunar mission has been remembered as an historic moment. Regarded as one of humanity’s most significant achievements, the goal of Apollo 11 was to land a man on the Moon and return him safely to the Earth.

The Lunar Module Eagle landed on the Moon, in the Sea of Tranquillity, on 21 July 1969 (AEST). A few hours later, Commander Neil Armstrong, followed by Lunar Module Piolet Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin, became the first humans to walk on the Moon’s surface.

Television of the moon walk was transmitted to 600 million viewers, and two radio antennas in Australia were an integral part of this historic event. Based in Honeysuckle Creek ACT and Parkes NSW, these ‘dishes’ and their Australian operators were in position to receive and transmit the television images of the moon walk.
